The Originals Season 1, Episode 8: "The River In Reverse"

Once again, I have been swinging so violently between, "Ugh, I hate Klaus," and "Ugh, I love Klaus." How does that work? I do have to say, though, I am really enjoying how this show is more of an ensemble show, in the way that every week, we see the show through one of the Mikaelsons' perspectives. Obviously, they're all featured each week, unless they're daggered, of course, but each week, there is a special focus on one of the siblings, and this week, Rebekah is the star, from the opening voiceover throughout the action of the entire show. That isn't to say that Klaus and Elijah don't get some excellent time in as well, not to mention Hayley and Marcel, but in general, I have appreciated Rebekah's character development more than any other character! Elijah has always been amazing, and Klaus has always repeated his same mistakes, but Rebekah in this series is SO different from the Rebekah we met in Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries, don't…

Oops.

So, to say I'm a little behind on recapping would be an understatement. To be fair, Thanksgiving was the kickoff to a super-busy last few weeks. After the holiday stuff was over, I got sucked into finals hell, and my boyfriend, who is in the military and currently stationed 1,000 miles away from here, was finally able to come home for the first time in nearly a year, so I've hardly had enough time to watch my shows, let alone blog about them!

BUT, now I am on break, so the last two recaps of bothThe Vampire Diaries and The Originals should be up within the next week or so! Also, Teen Wolf Season 3B is starting on January 6th, and I am hoping very hard to continue recapping it as well, so keep your eyes out for those recaps, TW fans!

Sorry for the delay! I hope all of you are having a nice holiday season, and thank you for reading. :)

The Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 8: "Dead Man on Campus" Recap/Review

[08 December 2013 12:35 EST--screencaps and gifs are added! Thanks for your patience. :)]

Before I get started, I just want to wish my American readers a VERY belated happy Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone stayed safe and happy and ate so much turkey and stuffing leftovers and took awesome carb-coma naps. If you're not American, or don't care for Thanksgiving (and I don't blame you if you are!), I still hope that you had an awesome and safe week/weekend as well! As you can probably guess, the lateness of this recap is 50% from it being dangerously close to finals week, and 50% due to a turkey/stuffing coma of such epic proportions that I was unable to break free from the tryptophan haze until like, yesterday. So, my apologizes, once again, for the lateness! I'm expecting the other two The Originals recaps to be up by Monday and hopefully TVD's will be up by Thursday!

ANYWAY, "Dead Man on Campus" was the perfect way to move on from all the doppelgänger sh…
